Came here through trip advisor and it was a lovely meal. Small place but they do big portions. Had the beef burger double and it was massive, great staff and was very busy. Definitely recommend this place. Only downside was that it was so busy I had to sit on the stools but apart from that, good pricing and great... More

This pub was recommended to us by our apartment owners and didn't disappoint. There is a great selection of local beers, great service, small outside seating area, but the bar interior is very quirky. The food was awesome, we only had burgers. But wow probably the best I've ever had, double diablo burger highly recommended.

Stopped here after a long walk and was quite pleased with the fish and chips, but their menu is bigger and all things coming out of the kitchen looked good. Some nice local beers and a good whisky selection along with a fabulous bar staff gives this place a solid 4.

We ordered a table in advance and we could enjoy a very nice atmosphere. Alltough this is a pub, you can not complain about the food. We had beefs with different kind of potatoes. We were very happy about the quality of the food and the service. Recommended.

Very much English pub feel about it with walls covered in UK name plates (a DDR nameplate completely out of place!).Decent menu ,meals are well prepared although helpings are smaller now than previously.Good choice of beers and service at the tables is quick.Weekday afternoons is the best time if you want to eat comfortably because it starts to get very...

Visited last year around same time and it was an awesome place to stopover and have some beer with friends. Do visit the rest rooms as its something you will definitely remember about this place as I do.

Upon entering, you can instantly feel the restaurant is trying hard to have an authentic English atmosphere. I ordered fish and chips, and it was made and served exactly as it should be - also for a fair price considering country and location. I have nothing bad to say about this place. It's worth visiting if you live close by... More

Decided to take a break from swedish food and try out this inexpensive english pub. Good decision. The food was good, and the whole family agreed the fries were amazing! Friendly service to top it off!
